We recently came back from our tour of the rum distillery. If you are lucky enough to snag a seat on the complimentary shuttle, then by all means it is worth the trip. Unfortunately there weren't enough seats for us (6), so we had to pay $46 roundtrip taxi service just to get here and $10 a piece for the... More

Small distillery where you get a first hand view of rum processed from Louisiana sugar cane. A taxi ride out of the Quarter, tho worth the short trip. Taste testing at tours end helps you to realize the spiced rum in iced tea is 'killer' for summer months in the South! Although the bottles are higher priced here (if you... More

We didn't know what to expect. saw it on a road map and said let's check it out. I'm glad we stopped. Very informative tour. Excellent Rum. I would advise the shuttle though. lots of 1 way streets and limited parking. and you'll want to partake of the samples and not worry about driving. We will definitely visit again whenever... More

The location is a bit out of the way but there is a shuttle service from the French Quarter. Don’t recommend walking as you go through an area that is a bit “rough”. The distillery is very small and can be seen in 10 minutes or less but we had a great time. Bob, our tour guide, was very informative... More

This tour is a hidden gem in the New Orleans area. After a nice welcome cocktail we got a interesting tour with great explanations about the making of the rums and their history. After the tour there was a tasting of all of their rums . If I ever visit New Orleans again I will take the tour again also.

I booked this your for myself and six friends- it was nothing short of exceptional. Given the large group, there were a lot of interests and this tour somehow managed to satisfy them all. Our tour guide, Jeff, was colorful and highly knowledgable in all things distillery and New Orleans. The tasting was varied and balanced, one to remember (particularly... More

The location was a bit out of the way in an industrial section but once you got there it was funl Our guide was fun and informative. Nice casual way to spend an hour without breaking the bank.

Only a 7 minute drive from the French Quarter. The tour guide was incredibly nice and knowledgable. Everyone that worked there was friendly and courteous. Definitely worth the $10 and the rum was unique and tasted great
